  • Ashbrook Nursery

    Ashbrook Nursery is a family run 'grower retailer'. Over 1500 varieties of bedding & patio plants, herbaceous perennials, alpines & grasses are grown on site, primarily for sale through our own garden centre. Plants are grown cool to help them withstand the rigours of the Scottish climate once planted out.
    Visitors to Ashbrook enjoy displays created using the huge palette of plant material available. Planted containers are our speciality.
    Posies of Ashbrook grown summer flowers and our own beautiful holly wreaths at Christmas are seasonal favourites. Our Café offers delicious home cooking & baking with local ingredients, while our gift shop displays a selection of work from local artists and crafters. Our newly developed Woodland Wander contains several features of interest including a no-dig’ shade border and stumpery.
